Sarovar Hotels & Resorts has strengthened its presence in North India with the signing of two new properties.
The company, which currently operates 72 hotels across India, has now agreed to manage the 81-room Muse Sarovar Portico New Delhi Kapashera and a 43-room Sarovar Portico hotel in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh.
Both properties are expected to be operational by July 2016.
“We are focusing on our expansion plans and the signing of these two properties boost the company’s strategic efforts to expand our brands even further across the region,” said Ajay K. Bakaya, Sarovar’s executive director. “With business as well as leisure travel continuing to rise in this region, we aim to grow our presence to meet the demand over the coming years in different markets including Dehradun, Raipur, and Amritsar.
“Through our distinctively recognised brands, we aim to offer value for money accommodation and superior hospitality to today’s travellers,” he added.
Owned by Palm Land Hotels & Resorts, the Muse Sarovar Portico New Delhi Kapashera will be located close to the Delhi airport. Facilities will include a restaurant, bar, gym, swimming pool and conference and banqueting facilities.
The Sarovar Portico in Palampur meanwhile, will be set in the Kangra Valley with views of the Dhauladhar mountain range. The property is owned by RS Belvedere.
Following the launch of the two new hotels, Sarovar plans to open further properties in Dehradun, Amritsar, Raipur, Jaisalmer, Ajmer, Bhavnagar, Jalandhar, Greater Noida and Bekal.
